Expert Quotes:

The five-speed automatic seems outdated when a $17K  Kia Forte has a six-speed, but it works compatibly if not thrillingly
Car and Driver

Like its Honda counterpart, the ILX hybrid has a multifunction display that tracks battery status, mpg, and system function and posts an Eco Score.
Popular Mechanics

In typical Acura fashion, adding extra content means buyers will have to spring for entire packages instead of individual options.
Automobile

f you don't care about driving a car wearing a "premium" badge, the Ford Focus Titanium can be had with all the goodies you can get in an ILX – plus a bunch of technology, such as Active Park Assist, that you can't get at all in the Acura – for the same price as the base ILX.
Autoblog

But if you want a refined compact car that has everything you and your smartphone need and not 1 cubic foot more, there's a case to be made for the ILX over the larger, less efficient cars in this price range.
Inside Line

While the 2013 Acura ILX is priced very competitively and offers convenient packaging for a coherent set of features and equipment, it lacks some of the higher-end items you'll find in slightly more expensive sedans, such as radar-adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and heads-up displays.

The base specification of the 2013 ILX is fairly generous. It includes: Bluetooth hands-free phone interface; power moonroof; keyless entry with push-button start; rear-view camera; a leather-wrapped steering wheel; cloth-trimmed front seats (2.0L base and Hybrid); dual-zone automatic climate control; and a 12-volt power outlet. Available accessories include larger 17-inch alloy wheels, aerodynamic bodywork, fog lights, a remote engine start, and an engine block heater.

Two primary packages are available to upgrade from the base specification, the Technology Package and the Premium Package.

The Technology Package includes: premium sound system with Bluetooth, USB, and Pandora among its capabilities; plus a navigation with voice recognition, a rear-view camera, real-time traffic/weather, and AcuraLink satellite communications system; premium sound system with Bluetooth, USB, and Pandora among its capabilities.

The Premium Package includes leather seating surfaces; eight-way power adjustable driver seat; two-way heated front seats; an auto-dimming rearview mirror; a multi-view rear camera; a premium sound system with Bluetooth, USB, and Pandora functionality; and on non-Hybrid models, an active sound cancellation system that further damps noise within the cabin.

The Premium Package is available on all ILX models (and is standard on the 2.4L), while the Technology Package is available only on 2.0L and Hybrid models.

Conclusion

With features arranged into two major packages, the 2013 ILX is easy to configure, but lacks much choice.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
